Hello everyone! Happy Friday to each of you. Welcome to another dog of the week. This week we are featuring Rusty the Pomeranian. Here is Rusty to tell you a little more about himself…
Hi my name is Rusty! My foster mom says that I have an inquisitive look on my face because I am very smart and curious for my age. I am not sure about how old I am, but I heard my foster mom say she thinks I am about 10 or 11 yrs old. Being the true Pomeranian that I am, I have a cute, little “curly Q” tail that wiggles when I am happy or entertained. I am a very friendly dog, I like everyone I meet and I am sure to greet everyone I see with a little tail wag and if you let me I will even try to sneak in a kiss or two. I like to make friends with other dogs and cats, but I am not too keen on wanting to play with them, only because I do not see very well and I sometimes mistake their playfulness as something scary. In my former home, I was the only dog so I wasn’t use to all the attention my foster sisters give to me! Now, my foster sisters and I are pals and we all try to cuddle at night in the same bed. I’ve really made myself at home!
I love to go outdoors and get excited when I get asked if I want to go potty. I wander around the back yard smelling everything and I am getting excited for the warmer weather. I really need a fenced in backyard, because as I said, I do not see so well and I would probably wonder off and unintentionally get lost. My foster mom carries me up and down stairs because I lose my balance and will fall down. That’s ok though, because I really like to be held. I love going for rides and I am an excellent passenger in the car, if I get too tired I just take a nap. I am also great on a leash and will go anywhere you want to take me. My most favorite thing in the whole world is a treat. I hear the word “treat” and my heart begins to flutter! My foster mom gives me these fabulous peanut butter treats that are just to die for!
Now I must tell you my only bad habit, when there is a thunderstorm I am a mess. Most of the time I am just a fun loving, cool and collected handsome fella, but when a thunderstorm is in the area I go ballistic. I pant heavily and do some crazy things so I will probably need some medicine that will help calm my nerves during a storm. Otherwise, I am an excellent doggy. I am very well potty trained. I know what the word potty means. I have virtually no accidents and have been able to wait to go potty for up to 9 hours when my foster mom comes home from work. I adapt very easily to any schedule and whatever is going on around me. I get very thirsty at times but that is because my foster sisters keep me active when we are in the backyard. I can do some really cute tricks too like sit and stay and I will sit up for treats. Oh, and when you are talking to me, I will tilt my head to the side and listen to you very intently.
I so very much want a forever home with you, won’t you please consider it? I promise to be a good boy and snuggle up with you on your couch and every once in awhile give you kisses. I am so easy to take care of and love and I want so much to share my love with you! If you think I would be a good match for you and your family please fill out an application on me. I just know I would be a welcomed addition to your home.
